My friend was having Mayra do her makeup for a business video, and I tagged along, and got my makeup done too (since it was my birthday). What a treat! Mayra made me look great--like myself but way better. She was (as others have said) super relaxed and personable. But she's also incredibly knowledgeable about makeup--about which products are best for your skin, about how to make you look like you're glowing from within (isn't that what we all want) and how to use makeup for different purposes (stage, film, a social event, business). Too many makeup artists are one trick ponies, who only do the kind of makeup they themselves wear--not Mayra. She really listens to her clients and helps them achieve their goals. From now on I plan to book Mayra for all of my speaking events and social events. I'm hoping she will still have time for me, since she's so in demand!

Anne was fantastic. I've worked with almost a dozen makeup artists and she was most definitely the best. I showed her a picture of how I'd like my makeup and she did a phenomenal job so quickly. The makeup lasted all throughout the day and night and I received so many compliments. I will certainly be requesting her service again. If I could choose one word to describe her work- FLAWLESS!

Can you rate someone 50 stars?? I have never been genuinely satisfied with getting my hair and makeup done before, and Liv is the first to make it happen for me. It was so nice to not have to awkwardly tell her I loved it when I was crying inside, I truly felt beautiful. Trying to find someone willing to show up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning was tough, and when she called to confirm she was super happy and excited, which made me even more excited for our appointment!! She was so nice, so peppy for the hour of the day, and listened to my preferences while giving her professional input to make sure everything came out perfect. Hands down the most amazing hair and makeup artist I’ve ever met!!!! Ask her about her cat Marvin if you need a good laugh. You cannot go wrong with her she is all around perfection

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department's 2nd Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat was another huge success with thanks to so many people. The department showed up in full force to provide a safe, fun, and positive Halloween event for the communities near the South Hayward and Coliseum stations. Thank you so much to everyone who provided donations and also to those who attended the event with their families. Everyone’s participation was appreciated and contributed to the success of Trunk or Treat. At our South Hayward BART station, we were lucky enough to have two special guests: The Hayward Fire Department, Station #7 and the most incredible artist and face painter: Sarah Joy of Joyful Expressions. From the time Sarah Joy arrived, there was a long line of excited children waiting to have their faces painted. While they patiently waited, Sarah Joy provided pictures of her designs for the children to choose. She brought smiles to faces of the children and their parents as they watched sons transformed into batman and pirates or daughter into butterflies or Dia de Los Muertos. Sarah worked quickly and was able to accommodate a continuous line of children for 2 hours without any break. She was the highlight of our 2017 Trunk or Treat. We would highly recommend Sarah Joy and Joyful Expressions to other police agencies, community groups or families looking for a dependable, professional and creative face painter to add to your events.

I highly recommend Yvonne! She is professional and experienced makeup and hair artist. She's confident in her career, and she knows what she's doing. Not only her professionalism, her personality was great. She was warmhearted and nice. You would enjoy being with her. Do not be afraid to tell her what you want. She wants to hear your preferred styles, and she will work with you. Her goal is to make you happy. Your happiness is her happiness. Also, she loves her job. This is very important. Her positive work attitude truly shows to her works on you. you will look gorgeous because her heart towards her career is passionate. You will feel the joy she has in her, and that will make your experience with her more positive and fun. I guarantee you will refer to your friends after your trial with her.

Not only is Nora a talented makeup artist and hair stylist, but she is very easy to talk to. I never felt awkward having a conversation with her and she really listened to what kind of look I had in mind. Although I just had my pre-trial with her, I definitely look forward to her doing my makeup on my wedding day for my bridal party and myself! I highly recommend Nora to anyone needing hair and makeup for any event.

Farrah was amazing to work with, I hired her to provide hair styling on a photoshoot and Farrah was a joy to have around. As a makeup artist in the community, I can vouch that Farrah is trustworthy, cares about the clients needs and is extremely professional. The hair styling was beautiful, and the guest was blown away with Farrah's talent. Would work with her again.

The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!

Adrianne is the best! She really is so sweet and really takes the time to understand what her client wants. When she did my makeup for my engagement shoot, we discussed thoroughly what I wanted and as she did my makeup, she would stop to ask if I wanted more or less. Her attention to detail and also to what I wanted was something that you cannot find in my makeup artists. I would definitely hire Adrianne again for any of my makeup needs! The final look was exactly what I wanted while still looking natural - Adrianne did exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you, girl - you're the best!

Oustanding service! From hiring to executing the day of my wedding. Julie was very attentive to my wants and needs during the planning stages, up to the day of my wedding and even after. She's very loving, caring and professional! She brought a team of make-up artists and hair dressers to where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready, and they did an outstanding job. All of my girls loved and RAVED about their hair and makeup. I'm so thankful for Julie and her team, they really made the process a breeze, was affordable and I will definitely use her services in the future. I highly recommend her and her team

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

  • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
  • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
  • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
  • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
  • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
  • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
  • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.

Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

  • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
  • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
  • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
  • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
  • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

How much should you tip a wedding makeup artist?

Wedding makeup artists ensure you and your bridal party are looking your best bright and early on your wedding day. Tipping a wedding makeup artist for their hard work is standard practice, and is also greatly appreciated. A tip of 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill is appropriate. You may consider tipping extra if the makeup artist or someone on their team went above and beyond — for example, squeezing in Aunt Martha at the last second or redoing a flower girl’s hair free of charge after she dunked it in the fountain.

A gratuity is a reflection of a job well done, so if the wedding makeup artist was late, did a shoddy job or didn’t provide all the services you negotiated, you are not required to tip. Talk with your wedding makeup artist prior to the event to ask how they prefer payment and gratuity to be handled. Can you pay by credit card the day of the event and include a tip then? Do you need to pay in cash the day of the event? Find out ahead of time how to manage payment for services so you can be prepared with cash or credit cards as needed. Even better, delegate the task of payment to someone in your bridal party so you can just enjoy your day.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
